Adult education and formation programs at SPC explore a broad array of subjects--theology, spirituality, history, bible and the arts—through a variety of meeting times and formats including: Sunday morning seminars (9:45-10:45), discussion groups, book studies, classes, forums, retreats, listening groups, and other small group experiences.

ADULT EDUCATION SUNDAY SEMINAR SERIES BEGINS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 19 via Zoom! In our continuing explorations of race and racial justice, we have chosen See No Stranger: A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love by Valarie Kaur for our next reading. Valarie Kaur is a renowned Sikh activist, filmmaker, and civil rights lawyer. In this book she declares revolutionary love is the call of our times, a radical, joyful practice that extends to others, to our opponents, and to ourselves. It asks us to see no stranger but instead look at others and say: You are a part of me I do not yet know. Drawing from wisdom from many sources — and her own riveting journey as a brown girl growing up in California farmland; as a young adult galvanized by the murders of Sikhs after 9/11; as a law student fighting injustices in American prisons and on Guantánamo Bay; as an activist working with communities recovering from xenophobic attacks; and as a woman trying to heal from her own experiences with sexual assault and police violence – Kaur discovers practices of revolutionary love to bring us longevity, resilience, and joy. We will again be discussing the book via Zoom rather than in person. The Zoom link will be provided the week before our first session. If you would like to purchase the book at the 4 Seasons bookstore, they are available September 2, a 15% discount is offered if you mention SPC. Please join us for a discussion of Chapter 1 at 9:30 AM on September 19.
